People join hands around the Wisconsin State Capitol after nurses and members of Service Employee International Union (SEIU) gathered with thousands of firefighters, teachers, public employees and pro-union citizens for a solidarity rally in Madison, Wis., on June 14, 2011. The rally is part of continued public protest against efforts by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican-controlled legislature to enact measures that negatively impact collecting bargaining rights for union workers and the benefits of public employees. In addition, state funding and support is being cut from the state budget for many programs related to education, healthcare and senior care. (Photo by Jeff Miller for SEIU)
